this is consistent with data observed


Last name falls into the M-Z range. Nothing in Manhattan.


We may be onto something!

That's the same with me, I'm a few letters in on that. Nothing in NJ.

Later last name. Nothing in the city of brotherly love.

Why is everyone SO concerned with total anonymity? Seems a little paranoid.

Last name starts with a letter in the final 1/3 of the alphabet, no decision as of yet.

I operate under the assumption that Columbia has narrowed it down to two people on here right now and don't want to end their mystery

Because some admissions people wouldn't like the obsessive nature of my speculation, spreadsheets, etc. :lol:

Sometimes I give advice that runs counter to the line that the admissions people want you to believe.

Also nothing with a very alphabetically-challenged last name in the PA area.

I wouldn't be surprised. I have been discriminated for the first letter of my last name all my life. Always towards the end of the line in school, etc. :lol:

Question: I got an email saying that all my components have been received Jan 7th, but three weeks later and my status is still "completion pending". With decisions rolling out, should I call Columbia and have that checked out?? :/

I had my interview this morning, and would be willing to share my experience through a PM. There's really nothing to worry about though, it was a very pleasant conversation and it made me even more excited about Columbia than before!

The first should be 1-7, I think this might divide it up too much.

Right? And now this?! Although I'll gladly wait a few more days if it means I'm not being skipped this round, just saved for last!

You're forcing me to count? I thought I was going to law school, not "count...ing...school".

I'm very close to the beginning of the alphabet and haven't heard anything yet, but I also live way down south, so distance could be a factor (at least I really hope so :shock: )
